Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.



Psalm 126:5-6

An Emotional Day

Today I am an emotional wreck. All I want to do is cry. I walked into the Levi room and saw Levi sitting on the floor quietly reading an book and I started to cry. I don't even know why, the tears just began to fall. I looked at him as he sat there and felt like he was no longer a baby. I know he still is but he is getting so big so fast. I feel like time is just flying by and all of my children are growing up right before my eyes. I know this is a good thing but it is also a sad time for me. There are times when I just want to stop time and keep these days going on forever, but I know we all have to grow and change and I am seeing that right here in my little home. I think I am just a little emotional today and that too shall pass.

Praying for you today!! Sometimes, I tell my husband that I wish my little girl could stay this age forever! In know it won't happen, but I know I will miss it when she is a big girl.

Sometimes when I would cry over those types of times you had with Levi, were very lonely and hard. Even at this time of my life, there are times like those for me. Thank you for sharing your heart, you are a good mother. love mom

My heart goes out to you...I can so identify. I smelled my 5 year old's head the other day, trying to commit to memory of that smell...I tell him, "Stop growing." He just smiles and says, " I have to, Mommy. That's how God made me." ::sigh::
